Earthwise Garden Design was established over 20 years ago by Anya Medlin, professional designer and horticulturist.

After completing a masters degree in History of Art at Cambridge University, Anya worked in Australia, Greece, Turkey and India teaching English.

On return to the UK she turned her focus back to her lifelong passion for plants and gardens and underwent further training in horticulture and garden design at Pershore, Lackham, Plumpton and RHS Wisley.

After winning a national award for exceptional exam grades, her subsequent work ranged from Head Gardener on an estate open to the public to an 18-month stint with the BBC, appearing as “Annie” in the BBC production “The Wartime Kitchen and Garden”.

Founding Earthwise Garden Design was an inevitable coming together of Anya’s life experiences and her love of nature and horticulture. In her spare time, Anya enjoys horse riding, long countryside walks with her rescue whippet and photography where she aims to capture her vision of the natural world. A photographic portfolio may be seen at Instagram.

If you have a garden project you’d like to discuss, give Anya a call and if appropriate she’ll arrange a visit where you can further explore your ideas and aspirations together.
